Buyer Overview

The South East Consortium (SEC) is a consortium of 43 social landlords who manage around 437,000 properties located in the South East of England. SEC mission is to support customers or clients in delivering a brilliant service to residents through collaborative procurement and as such, work in partnership with other consortia, e.g. EEM and Westworks. Therefore, this Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) covers the whole of England and Wales and the aim is to have competent suppliers in each county to deliver the works within this DPS. SEC is funded through customer subscription and a service provider levy as explained later in this document and in schedule 3 of the DPS agreement. You can find further information about SEC and its customers or clients at: www.southeastconsortium.org.uk

SEC are tendering a DPS for Responsive Repairs, Voids and Planned Works. The DPS will run for 5 years. If successful, you will have the opportunity to consider local and regional contracts through “Further Competition”. Contracts called off may, where appropriate, exceed the duration of the DPS.

This Responsive repairs, Voids and Planned Maintenance DPS is being procured to allow SEC customer organisations to procure these types of works according to their specific needs. The SEC aim is make this DPS as flexible as possible for both SEC customers or clients and suppliers alike and to provide a fair competition for Further Competitions for the different work streams.

The setup of this DPS will allow for responsive works, void works and planned works at a variety of different levels, to allow both smaller Clients and Suppliers to benefit from works procured from the DPS. The aim is to allow a variety of works for different size projects. SEC aim to achieve this via SEC lot strategy which is explained further below:

Lot 1: Responsive Repairs – This lot will cover numerous repairs required by SEC Clients, for works they require to their properties, which are of a responsive nature. Suppliers in these lots may specialise in various work streams such as: Scaffolding.

Security, CCTV, Warden Call

Lot 2: Voids – This lots will cover works required to empty properties by SEC Clients. Voids are usually time sensitive as the Client will want to get the property re-let to minimise loss of rental income. The Client will usually specify the work and advise of a timescale for which they need the work completed. They may require a specific work stream item to be completed, or request several types of work, dependent on their requirements. Suppliers in these lots may specialise in various work streams such as: Scaffolding. Excavation and Earthwork, Demolition, Fencing, Drainage above and below ground, Concrete work, Masonry work, Roofing, Woodwork, Metalwork, Finishing works (Plastering, rendering, flooring, carpeting), Painting and Decorating, Cleaning and Clearance, Glazing, Plumbing and Heating, Electrical Installations, TV aerials, Door Entry systems, General Property Maintenance, General Builders, Fire Doors, Fire Alarms.

Lot 3: Planned Works – This lot will cover planned capital works required to properties owned by SEC Clients. The work items will usually cover complete renewals of property elements as outlined below. These may be individual element renewals or a various number of properties which require the same work stream. SEC Clients may only wish to have individual work items completed on an adhoc basis, or they may wish to enter into a formal contract covering their requirements over a specified timescale. SEC are aiming to provide as much flexibility for both Suppliers and Clients alike by operating in this way. Where a formal contract is required to cover a period of time, will provide this information at ‘Further Competition’ stage. Anticipated works to be carried out within this lot are – Property Refurbishments, Kitchens and Bathrooms, Electrical testing and Rewires, Fencing and gates, Renewal of drainage installations, Concrete repair works, Masonry and stone works, Roofing both flat and pitched, Internal and external Decorations and repairs, Windows and Door replacements, Finishing works (Plastering, rendering, flooring, carpeting), Cleaning and Clearance, Plumbing and Heating, TV aerials, Door Entry systems, Scaffolding, CCTV servicing and installations, Passive Fire protection, Warden Call

Lot 4: Multidisciplinary – The multidisciplinary lot is aimed to allow SEC clients to Further Competition different types of work, all under one agreement. This may include any combination of responsive works, voids or planned works which have been described previously. It is envisaged any Further Competitions via a ‘Further Competition’ under this lot will be longer term arrangements with a specified timescale. These are likely to be formulated via a contract which will provide certainty for both parties in terms of operating procedures
